The jury is in at Crackle, starting Aug. 5.
The digital network is debuting a new original series, Sequestered, and Yahoo TV has the first look at the show’s poster, featuring stars Jesse Bradford (Bring It On), Summer Glau (Arrow, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement), Heather Dubrow (The Real Housewives of Orange County), and James Maslow (Big Time Rush, Dancing With the Stars).
The 12-episode series follows a group of jurors confined to a hotel while deliberating a huge court case with life-changing implications. Judging by the poster, the jurors develop contentious relationships — hardly anybody is looking directly at anyone else, and there are side-eye glares to spare.
“The premise for Sequestered is pretty unique; it’s not quite like any other TV show I’ve seen,” Bradford told Yahoo TV. “We tried to make each moment fast-paced and exhilarating. I’m curious to see if we get the same reaction from audiences that I had while reading the script. I’m glad to be a member of the Crackle family; we’re very lucky to have assembled such a talented cast and crew.”
The first six episodes of Sequestered premiere Aug. 5 and the remaining six eps will be available Oct. 14. Crackle is becoming a major destination for original series; it already hosts Jerry Seinfeld’s acclaimed Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
“I’ve had such a great time working with this incredible team on such an exciting new show,” director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) told us. “The caliber of talent that we had the opportunity to work with is incredible, and we hope people will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed working on it.”
Crackle’s official description of Sequestered:
Danny Firmin (Bradford), a young attorney with a promising career, begins to uncover a major conspiracy behind his big case defending the alleged murderer of Governor Mark Bennett’s (Warburton) 8-year-old son. Sequestered juror Anna (Glau) is forced to choose between her beliefs and the safety of her family while deliberating the fate of a potentially innocent man. Surprising alliances form, sparking tensions and testing morals as Anna puts her life on the line to expose the conspiracy and find true justice for all involved.
Sequestered premieres Tuesday, Aug. 5 on Crackle.
